What could be better than wrapping up a day of spring skiing, walking into Sugarloaf's Widowmaker Bar, grabbing a cold brew and getting down to some dubbed out tunes? If you answered nothing, then Sugarloaf’s 24th annual Bud Light Reggae Festival, is the spot for you to be April 12-15 with eight bands and the return of the popular Reggae Rave.
The Reggae Rave, first introduced last year, will run from 9 p.m-12 a.m Friday night on The Beach, and will feature dancehall reggae from Boston-based Renegade Sound Station, as well as professional lighting and sound, bringing the nightclub experience to the outdoors.
This year’s festival will feature headlining artist Castafari performing in the King Pine Room on Saturday night, as well as six hours of free outdoor music during the day on Saturday by CuLLu, Sixth Degree, and Dread Rocks. Reggae bands Pulse Prophets and Gorilla Finger Dub Band will also perform in the Widowmaker Lounge throughout the Festival.
